Midway Through Alert Level 3 - Viranda Holdings LTD
We are midway 🤞🏼 through L3 here in Auckland and we hope you are doing okay. Again, our team are working from home with minimal disruption – but we do miss the office banter. So we thought it was time to share some light-hearted positivity. Here’s some hump-day musings from our desk to yours:


  1. NZ’s team of 5 mil are doing great. Our recovery is outpacing the rest of the world. We’ve even grown our economy during the pandemic (the only other country to do so is China).
  2. For the Industrial Sector, vacancy rates and rents have hardly shifted throughout Covid-19, it really is the standout asset class.
  3. Vaccines have started rolling out – that’s surely a step in the right direction.
  4. When borders open, NZ will be an enticing place to live, work and play.
  5. Historically low interest rates (set to stay for some time) are causing feverish demand for commercial properties.
  6. Who knew QR codes would become so vital. Contact Tracing is easy when posters are displayed everywhere – is yours upfront and central?
  7. As the ‘work from home’ reality continues, a steady routine has become important for mental health, and we’re checking in with clients and colleagues as much as possible.
